Innovate UK Funding and Meet the Experts Session
The UK Industry Strategy has recently been introduced and has created many new funding schemes to support industry. These range for funding support mechanisms for industry from Grants for R&D through to support work with the National Measurement Service to improve productivity.
This event will cover an overview of the Industry Strategy Challenge Fund that supports R&D for product development.
It will then cover the Analysis for Innovators (A4I) programme that targets competitiveness and productivity directly. It helps companies by offering support to use the cutting-edge R&D, expertise and facilities available from the National Measurement Service (NEL, NPL, LGC and STFC).
A4I addresses real problems in existing processes within businesses, and so it is of interest to companies that traditionally would not consider applying for funding. Any size of business with any type of measurement or analysis problem are eligible to apply.
At the session, you’ll be able to:
- Discover more about the various forms of support available from Innovate UK
- Learn about the how Innovate UK, Knowledge Transfer Network and NEL support businesses
- Meet advisors who can help you navigate the innovation landscape as well as make valuable business introductions
